extremly urgent


hi guys

i have a suse version of linux and the problem is i don't know how to mount an usb flash disk.
so our friend bore from MA advice me to log in as root and then tape fdsik you will notice something like that



boot
/bin/sda1
/bin/sda2 *

so then when i make a folder in the /mnt
i called it memcard
and then i mount my usb disk
by taping this
mount /mnt/sda2 /mnt/memcard
and when i enter the /mnt/memcard
i notice that there is a copy of my linux :Ripper_Is_Here:
make this
$ cd /mnt/memcard
$cat
/bin /mnt /usr /tmp ....... ( and the other linux folder )

so i got a little bit angry and i decided to remove this folder( i mean the memcard folder)
i did this
rm -r -d /mnt/memcard

guess what happen next

my linux has been crashed
when i tape ls it gives me nothing
even when i taped halt .it doesn't even shut down
and when i forced the shut down by pressing the shut down button(i use VMWARE so it's equivalent to close the session)
and then when start back the linux it says can't load linux and stoped
:wacko:
as a conclusion i advice all the linux user to not enter your session as root
you may crash your system

now i have a project to made with linux and how can i do it?
you see ! xp is more powerfull than linux because even you are a root on xp OS you don't have the permission to make such a thing so your system fall down .
that's one of the weakness of linux !
BE AWARE so !!!

You know, sometimes its almost as if.. prior research done by 'newbies' is done to find exactly the things that provoke the forum members the most.

Its a perfect post to that end, actually.

Large text
spelling errors
extreme urgent as thread title
both arrogance and inexperience to know the weaknesses of linux
user-error
ignorance by screaming example

This is like a perfectly boiled stew, with all the ingredients.

I want to die now. Theres no hope for humanity. This is where the internet and anything else good in the world dies.

did you happen to try to type cygwin into google? there is not a great deal of things named cygwin out there, so it may be close to the top of the page.

heh, if one goes rooting around XP's hive, deleting keys at random, I'm sure that you can get XP to crash...
Try going into the Windows folder and deleting random files, I'm sure that will be the same affect. One click and delete...now that's easy to foobar your system!

I suggest that you resintall Linux and find yourself a good man.
man pages that is... as a newbie I would suggest:
1. man rm or any other command. Understand not only what you are doing but why.
2. searching the threads of LQ. I could have sworn with few posts we have on here and the very few users that are on, that 1 person might have gone through the same questions....
3.google "Creating Mount Points" + SUSE
4. sudo is better at first than loging in as root.
5. The L in Linux stands for Learning, embrace it.

I thought suse auto mounted removable media?

anyway

Google search
Results 1 - 10 of about 3,710,000 for mounting usb flash linux. (0.44 seconds)

im sure that one of the 3 million pages found could of helped you.

like the first one
http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/lin...ves-linux.html

there you go at least i replied with a helpfull link i rellay dident need to as you could have done this your self. With linux you have to want to help your self rather then letting somone tell you how to do it.

It does but the OP is using VMware.
I have had this problem before myself with a suse virtual machine and I'm sure there is a Usb controller setting in VMware, did you try this before you started stamping your feet

I get the strong feeling I know what happened to the OP's (virtual) system that caused such a complete failure.

Theres usually only couple a things that leads to that.

It may have more to with a certain mistype, rather than a usb controller problem.

Have you tried any of the suggestions that were given in the two threads you created for this problem? And if so, what were your results? Most of the folks here are more then willing to help, assuming you give some basic info and not bad talk Linux...

Well... the basic difference is that in XP you never you who is the boss, the Windows installation or the admin. I know cases where I tried to do something in Windows as administrator, which were fully legitimate, but prohibited by Windows. It costed me a huge amount of work to get that right.

And BTW, try to find out the difference between taping and typing. Even if English is not you mother language, trying to use the correct spelling is nice for those who try to help you. After all not all effort is to be done by others.
